About Mike

Mike gets all the racing games because he understands that stuff even though he doesn't drive.

If there’s one genre I tend to tiptoe around, it’s tactical turn-based RPGs. I’ve never really found one I’ve enjoyed and I do struggle to find a foothold in them. Hopefully that will change with Battle Brothers. Coming from Overhype Studios, this has had a fairly positive reception on PC. […]

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town – PS4 Review
